Artec EDGE-BL Preamp Blender System with Piezo & Magnetic Soundhole Pickups

The Dream of Acoustopia

Recommended Retail Price


The EDGE-BL has a Blender EQ and basic controls of Bass, Middle, Treble and Presence. Through the AUX-INPUT jack at the bottom a Condenser Microphone or Soundhole Pickup can be connected. This pack contains both an undersaddle piezo pickup and a magnetic soundhole pickup.

Also the sound from another source can be plugged in. The Blender can control the mixing balance of the piezo sound from 4-band EQ, and the sound from AUX-Input. The Phase switch on the panel is applied to piezo sound only, therefore this can give the additional choices about Plus-Mixing or Minus-Mixing of piezo pickup sound and AUX sound. This enables you to create great tone variations.
